Abstract:
This study was carreid out to determine the test-retest reliability of a battery of six performance tasks. Four of these tasks were designed to assess individual performance, and the remaining two tasks were designed to measure crew or group-dependent performance. In each of these group tasks, successful performance required interactions among crewmembers in the form of exchanges of information, cooperation, and temporal coordination. Each of 5, 5-man crews was tested for 4 consecutive hours a day on each of 4 days after a 3-day training period. All testing was conducted with the crewmembers seated at work stations in an advanced-system crew compartment mock-up. All of the measures taken with the six tests exhibit satisfactorily high reliability coefficients.
